Today, Amy says, Rhett is reading, doing math, and is participating in “regular” classes–thanks to brain training provided by LearningRx.
The turnaround in Rhett’s struggle with autism came unexpectedly when the couple was selected to compete on “The Biggest Loser.” Phil and Amy—who began the show weighing a combined total of 560 pounds—went on to lose over 200 pounds over the course of the show and, in the process, share their story—and the story of their autistic son—with a nation.
As a result, they were contacted by one of LearningRx’s 70 brain training centers.
On The Biggest Loser “Where Are They Now?” television special that aired on November 24th, Amy talked about the profound difference that LearningRx’s brain training programs have made in the life of her son.
“My youngest son Rhett is autistic. We were told there were lots of things he could never do,” she said during her interview on The Biggest Loser follow-up special. She added that, as a result of the brain training provided by LearningRx, “now he can read, he can do math, he’s in regular classes.”
